I've seen like, 2 Garens do extremely well in Dom.
Both of those Garens went with a high damage build with Youmus, Atmas, and some other hybrid defensive/offensive items.
If you build tank on Garen, you fall off hardcore. But if he builds some damage and gets a decent chunk of crit, the spin to win starts to become quite scary.

Sunfire is just a sub-par item. The only reason you'd buy it is for the passive, and the passive damage is completely ignorable.
If you need health and armor, buy Randuins. It's better than Sunfire, period.
